Carlisle Laboratories chooses SADE SP240 Weight Sorter for Quality Control

Carlisle Laboratories Limited recently took delivery of a SADE SP240 weight sorter from CI Precision for use in their Tablet/Capsule Production department for 100% weight sorting for quality control. Carlisle Laboratories have been using weight sorting units from CI Precision for over 15 years.

Robert Arrindell, Senior Technician in the Maintenance Department says,

“Our decision to purchase the SADE SP240 was based on the reliability and service of laboratory equipment previously purchased from CI Precision.”

The SADE SP240 is used to weight sort both tablets and capsules: tablet sizes are between 5.5 – 13mm; capsule sizes: 0,1, 2. Batch sizes vary between 100,000 – 2,500,000 items. Carlisle Laboratories also purchased an SP Connect software licence, Validation Support Documentation and a Full Spares Pack.

Mr Arrindell comments,

“I can recommend the SADE SP240 to other companies because it is simple to operate, easy to clean and maintain and has acceptable reliability.” He adds, “The customer support from CI Precision, from sales to installation, is very good, and the on-site training is also good.”

The company is a small branded generic pharmaceutical manufacturer producing products in Barbados, West Indies, since 1961 and exporting more than 80% of its production mostly within the Caribbean area.

Carlisle Laboratories currently operate a small but well-equipped plant which includes some electronically controlled machines and robotics. They produce a range of liquid, semi-solid and solid dosage forms across a range of about 200 SKUs, supplying the private and public sectors throughout the region.
